Growth Energy Statement on EPA’s Latest Denial of Small Refinery Exemptions

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor issued the following statement on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) latest denial of small refinery exemption (SREs) under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS):

“We appreciate the EPA standing by its commitment to protect the integrity of the RFS. Nearly two decades of data prove that the supposed ‘cost’ to refiners is an accounting fiction, and EPA’s decision reflects those facts. We look forward to working with EPA to ensure the RFS continues to promote lower-cost, lower-carbon fuel options at the pump.”
